International Regulator of Coaching and Mentoring, CIC
Individual Suppliers Directory

This register provides links to the Coaches and/or Mentors accredited/credentialed by Professional Bodies who have demonstrated their commitment to excellence by (R) registering or (A) accrediting the Professional Body and in turn their members (coaches, mentors).  In addition Coaches and Mentors may select to (R) register themselves directly.  The combination creates the IRCM’s Individual Suppliers unified single transparent register for the benefit of all consumers.  Consumers who are looking to verify their coach and/or mentor details should verify that the coach and/or mentor is accredited/credentialed by a Professional Body or registered on the IRCM register.  This single central unified directory of Individual Suppliers and the unified Industry Codes will continue to grow consumer confidence in the industry.

TRADING:

Coach clarifies to the consumer which service or services this Professional Organisation supports.  This Professional Organisation supports individuals who work as coaches, and training organisations who train individuals to become coaches through learning mentoring skills, tools, techniques, etc.

Although it is generally the members of these bodies who are the consumers; it is important for all types of consumers to be clear about the service or services the Professional Body provides in the coaching and mentoring industry, so that they are aware of the validation through credential/accreditation/other status allocated to the individual they select as their coach, or training company they select to train with.

Mentor clarifies to the consumer which service or services this Professional Organisation supports.  This Professional Organisation supports individuals who work as mentors, and training organisations who train individuals to become mentors through learning mentoring skills, tools, techniques, etc.

Coach and Mentor clarifies to the consumer which service or services this Professional Organisation supports.  This Professional Organisation supports individuals who work as coaches and mentors, and training organisations who train individuals to become coaches and mentors through learning mentoring skills, tools, techniques, etc.

Although it is generally the members of these bodies who are the consumers; it is important for all types of consumers to be clear about the service or services the Professional Body provides in the coaching and mentoring industry, so that they are aware of the validation through credential/accreditation/other status allocated to the individual they select as their coach, or training company they select to train with.

It is important to be aware of the skills being offered by the individual or courses/workshops being offered by the training organisations; as the definitions of these two elements of this industry provide the end-user consumer with different services.

Currently Trading confirms whether the Professional Organisation is still trading.

This is important for the end-user consumer, as the coach, mentor, or training organisation may still be promoting their membership or accreditation/credential with the Professional Body.

Insured demonstrates that the Professional Organisation has valid Professional Indemnity Insurance.

It is recognised that not every country recognises Professional Indemnity Insurance, but it is the recommendation of the IRCM that all Professional Organisation have valid Professional Indemnity Insurance.

OTHER DETAILS AND INFORMATION:

The IRCM provides each Professional Body the opportunity to be REGISTERED with or ACCREDITED by the IRCM.

Where a Coach and/or Mentor who has selected to REGISTER with the IRCM, directly and is accredited/credentialed by a Professional Body, the IRCM will reference the Professional Body.  Where the Professional Body is Registered or Accredited by the IRCM, the reference will be linked back to the information provided.  In this way, the consumer is able to verify the quality of the Professional Body and the competence and qualification of the individual supplier.

The IRCM’s Star System is based on facts provided by the consumers; who, in this case, are the members (coaches, mentors, training organisations) of the Professional Body.

With so many Professional Organisations representing themselves in the coaching and mentoring industry; the consumers are having challenges finding the right Professional Organisation to join.  It can also be difficult for the coaches, mentors, and training organisations (in other words, consumers) wanting to join; to understand the difference between the different products that are offered.

Star Ratings are provided by the consumers.  They are not a validation of the service or services provided but are simply the opinion of another person who has used the service or services offered by the Professional Organisation.  It is the recommendation of the IRCM, for any Professional Organisation joined; that the consumer has done their own due-diligence.

The IRCM encourages the clients and students of the Professional Body members to provide input into the IRCM’s Star System.

  1. a link to the Coaches and/or Mentors who are accredited/credentialed with those Professional Bodies who are registered with or accredited by the IRCM, and
  2. the individual Coaches and/or Mentors who have selected to register themselves independently of their Professional Body, and
  3. the individual Coaches and/or Mentors who have selected to register themselves but are not a member of a Professional Body.

This directory provides details of all Professional Bodies and any Coach and/or Mentor who wishes to demonstrate their commitment to excellence by including themselves on the Single Central Directory for the benefit of all consumers.  It is important to note that these individuals may be members of a Professional Body or may have selected not to become a member of a Professional Body.

The IRCM can confirm the directory status of each Professional Body and therefore the Coach and/or Mentor who is a member of that Professional Body; and the individual Coaches and/or Mentors who are independently included, the detail held for REGISTERED was correct at the time of application or renewal and it is the responsibility of the Professional Body to maintain their listing of current members (Coaches and/or Mentors) and for each Coach and/or Mentor to provide regular updates as necessary.

For this reason, the IRCM cannot guarantee the information displayed on record is current and up-to-date, and therefore the extent to which you may rely on the information displayed to be correct is in the hands of the Professional Body or Coach and/or Mentor.

In order that the consumers benefit from high quality services and products provided by these Coaches and Mentors; the IRCM encourages all consumers to verify the Competence (accreditation/credential with a Professional Body), Qualification (training), and Insurance of each coach and/or mentor with the individual and/or their Professional Body.

This provides a level of assurance that the coach and/or mentor has been independently verified as to their knowledge and experience as a coach and/or mentor.

Although the IRCM can confirm the register status of each Professional Body, Coach and/or Mentor, the detail held for those directories from the Professional Bodies, or the detail held for the Coaches and/or Mentors included on this Directory was correct at the time of application or renewal.  It is the responsibility of the Professional Body, Coach and/or Mentor to provide regular updates as necessary.  For this reason, the extent to which you may rely on the information displayed to be correct is in the hands of the Professional Body, Coach, and/or Mentor.

Consumers for Professional Bodies are generally considered to be their members (coaches, mentors, and private commercial training organisations) and this register provides those consumers with a single place for transparency and openness.

The IRCM recommends that consumers for the Coach and/or Mentor who is accredited/credentialed by a Professional Body, that the Professional Body is Accredited or Registered by the IRCM.  Consumers will then be able to verify the competence of the coach and/or mentor as part of their due-diligence when researching who to work with.  If the Professional Body is not Registered or Accredited, the IRCM cannot provide validation that the coach and/or mentor abides by the Coaching and Mentoring Industry Codes.
